historically appropriate

Website design relying on woodcut image. Help me find an appropriate serif.



For my portfolio site I will make use of a woodcut image. I want to find a serif typeface that would be historically appropriate for it and/or an interesting choice (for whatever reason you find it to be so; but please explain that reason). I can't give too much information about the site, but I'll just mention this: I plan on designing custom blogs for Protestant Christian writers, so a typeface that references the Reformation period (or is in any way relevant to the Reformation) would be a bonus.

Requirements for the typeface:
* It must be available as a webfont, preferably through Typekit or Google Webfonts. But I'm open to other suggestions as long as I don't have to host the file(s) myself.
